    • My friend is wearing this which was blessed by a Tibetan monk.   Asked me if it is ok to just cut it and throw away.  She does not want to wear it any more.   I told her I don't know but will help to find out.  

      Can anyone here advise ??

      Instead of cutting it up and throwing it away, it may be better to burned it and just said a short Om Ah Hum while doing so.

      Thank you.  Is this the normal practice?   My friend worries if there is any side effect after removing it, is there?

      There is no one normal practice for getting rid of blessed objects. You are likely to get just as many different answers from just as many peoples. Some may advise that you put it away in a high place or place them inside a statue with other items, especially those that are hollow in the centre. This statue is then send to a temple to be blessed.  

       

      It is a religious item, so disposed of it with some care and respect like not mixing it up with all your other trash before getting rid of it. There is nothing to feel guilty about removing the bracelet if there is no any bad intent for not wanting to wear it and if there is no advice as to how long you have to put it on. This is just my take.

      Merry Meet Minx,

      These colorful knotted strings carry the blessings of the Tibetan Monk or Spiritual Master to protect the wearer, ward off negative energies and evil eye. They can last from few days to weeks or even years and when they are worn out they will come off or break, this indicate that it has deflected all the negative and absorbed all the energies, and can no longer hold any more. It has done its job. It varies from individuals to individuals.

      If you do not want to wear it anymore, it is better to untie it rather than cut it with scissors. Untie it with Intent and Respect by giving thanks for the blessings and protection. You can chose to keep it. If you do not want it anymore, the easiest way is to burn it on the 1st or 15th of the Lunar Month, dispose the remnant ashes under the tree, on field, greenery, into body of water like river or sea.

      There is no need to be overly concerned or worried over this matter as these strings are meant to be blessings from Tibetan Monk or Spiritual Master of your Religious Practice. They are of good intents.

      Hope all these answered your concern.

      Blessed Be,
      Oceanos
